If the comments are anything like YouTube's, this may set science back by decades.

I want to see the article on choosing the appropriate soundtrack for your zoological video.

It's a cool journal, but this is a double.

Har har, peer-reviewed. The lab I'm in (let's call it X-lab) was approached by these guys. They said it was just as valuable as any other publication (i.e. an article), because it's "peer-reviewed". "Oh, so who's going to review us?" we asked. "Well, I can vouch for you. After all, you're X-Lab, you obviously know what you're doing." Uhhh....

Still, it is cool stuff. And if you trust X-lab, then you can believe it. From what I can tell, Dr. X just doesn't want us to waste to much time with it.

I hear you Humanzee. Somewhere I've got the slide deck from a talk where the person says, towards the beginning, X happens because the antibody is acting as the limiting reagent, not the analyte. Then, after a huge amount of DOE work, they declare that they can eliminate X by coating the plate with less antibody.

That this person was working for a company whose stock is kicking our stock's butt just made me grind my teeth.

I guess [to all of the above]. But there is something horrifying, and kind of great, in getting to watch that magnetic tethering process in real time.
